Most patients will benefit best from comprehensive orthodontic treatment to correct misalignment of the teeth and shape a healthy bite.
Perhaps you already had orthodontic treatment and have not worn your retainer or maybe your general dentist needs to see specific movement or tooth alignment to continue their work. Depending on your particular case and your particular smile goals, there are some instances where limited orthodontic treatment may be appropriate.
Because this type of treatment is limited in nature, treatment usually progresses faster, with most cases finishing in 6 to 10 months. It’s important to understand your particular case, and there is no one better to help you with this than our board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Castilla.
